I/O Controller and NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 Console and Auxiliary Port Cable Connections


Note Both the console and auxiliary ports are asynchronous serial ports; any devices connected to these ports must be capable of asynchronous transmission.



Step 1 Before connecting a terminal to the console port, configure the terminal to match the router console port as follows: 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 2 stop bits (9600 8N2).

Step 2 Use an EIA/TIA-232 DCE console cable to connect the terminal to the console port. After you establish normal router operation, you can disconnect the terminal.


Note You must supply your own interface cable between the auxiliary port and the equipment you are connecting.
For console and auxiliary port pinouts, see the online Cisco 7200 VXR Installation and Configuration Guide,
Chapter 3, "Console Port Signals and Auxiliary Port Signals."



Note When connecting to an auxiliary port on a Cisco 7200 VXR router, the port will not function at baud rates higher than 19.2kb. If the baud rate on the connecting device is set higher than 19.2kb, garbled text or nothing will be displayed on the screen.



Depending on the I/O controller installed in your Cisco 7200 VXR router, you may have a Gigabit Ethernet port, RJ-45 ports, or no Ethernet port. The following table provides information about the types of ports on different I/O controller models.

2 autosensing Ethernet/Fast Ethernet ports; equipped with 2 RJ-45 receptacles for 10/100-Mbps operation.

C7200-I/O

Has no Ethernet port.


Ethernet Port Connections

I/O controllers have the possibility of one or two of three types of Ethernet connections: MII connections and RJ-45 connections for 10/100-Mbps operation, and a Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) connection for 1000-Mbps operation. For more information about Ethernet ports, see the online Cisco 7200 VXR Installation and Configuration Guide.

RJ-45 Connections


Warning To avoid electric shock, do not connect safety extra-low voltage (SELV) circuits to telephone-network voltage (TNV) circuits. LAN ports contain SELV circuits, and WAN ports contain TNV circuits. Some LAN and WAN ports both use RJ-45 connectors. Use caution when connecting cables. Statement 1021


To identify the RJ-45 cable type, hold the two ends of the cable next to each other so you can see the colored wires inside the ends. The straight-through wire type has colored wires in the same sequence at both ends.

In the crossover wire type, the first colored wire at the far left is the third colored wire at the other end. The second colored wire at the far left is the sixth colored wire at the other end.

Attach any RJ-45 Ethernet cables to the appropriate connector.

SFP and GBIC Interface Cables Installation

For more information on cables, specifications, or product numbers, see the Cisco 7200 VXR Installation and Configuration Guide or the Network Processing Engine or Network Services Engine Installation and Configuration.


Note All SFPs have LC type connectors. All GBIC ports have SC-type connectors.


After the GBIC or SFP is installed in the Gigabit Ethernet port, you must attach the optical fiber cables to the SFP or GBIC. Optical fiber cables are commercially available; they are not available from Cisco Systems.


Warning Class 1 laser product. Statement 1008



Warning Because invisible laser radiation may be emitted from the aperture of the port when no cable is connected, avoid exposure to laser radiation and do not stare into open apertures. Statement 70



Note The 1000BASEZX SFP or GBIC provides an optical power budget of 21.5 dB. Measure your cable plant with an optical loss test set to verify that the optical loss of the cable plant (including connectors and splices) is less than or equal to 21.5 dB. The optical loss measurement must be performed with a 1550-nm light source.


Attach the Multimode and Single-Mode Optical Fiber Cables


Note We strongly recommend cleaning all optical fiber connections before reconnecting optical cables to equipment. For information about cleaning optical connectors, see the Inspection and Cleaning Procedures for Fiber-Optic Connections document and the Compressed Air Cleaning Issues for Fiber-Optic Connections document.


Attach the appropriate optical fiber cable directly to the LC-type connector on the SFP, or the SC-type receptacle on the GBIC. You can use either simplex or duplex connectors for most devices.

Two cables are required for simplex connectors, one cable for transmit (TX) and one for receive (RX).

One cable that has both TX and RX connectors is required for duplex connectors.


Caution If you plan to use a WS-G5486 or GBIC-LX/LH or SFP-GE-L at distances greater than 984.25 feet (300 meters) over 50/125-micron or 62.5/125-micron multimode fiber, you must use the mode-conditioning patch cord to prevent data transmission problems.

Attach the Mode-Conditioning Patch Cord

A mode-conditioning patch cord can be used with GBIC WS-G5486 or GBIC-LX/LH or SFP-GE-L to allow reliable laser transmission between the single-mode laser source on the GBIC or SFP and a multimode optical fiber cable. To use the mode-conditioning patch cord, follow these steps:


Step 1 Attach the patch cord. For a GBIC on the NPE-G1, use a patch cord with an SC-type connector. For the SFP on the NPE-G2, use a patch cord with an LC-type connector.

Step 2 Attach the network ends (beige/beige) of your patch cord to the appropriate 1000BASEX equipment in your building cable plant.



Note Ensure that you connect the TX and RX ports on one end of the patch cord to the RX and TX ports (respectively) on the other end. Connect TX to RX and RX to TX.


Port Adapter Cable Connections

The instructions for connecting the cables for each port adapter installed in the Cisco 7200 VXR routers are in the respective online note for each port adapter. The documents are available on the Documentation DVD and on Cisco.com. Reference them from the Cisco 7200 Series Routers Documentation Roadmap at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/7200/roadmaps/7200_series_doc_roadmap/3512.html

Placing the Cables in the Cable-Management Brackets

Figure 15 Placing Cables in the Cable-Management Brackets


Step 1 Place the GBIC cables, RJ-45 cables, or SFP cables through the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 optical cable-management brackets.

Step 2 Place any cables from port adatpers, auxiliary and console ports, through the cable mangement brackets and secure.


5 Start and Configure the Router

Power Cable Connections


Caution This unit might have more than one power cord. To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect the two power supply cords before servicing the unit. Statement 83


Warning The AC power supply has double pole/neutral fusing. Statement 188


Connect AC-Input Power


Note When powering off the router, wait a minimum of 30 seconds before powering it on again.

Step 1 At the rear of the router, check that the power switch (1) is in the off (O) position.

Step 2 Slide the cable-retention clip (4) up, away from the AC port, and plug in the power cable (2).

Step 3 If you are installing the adjustable power cable-retention clip shown in Figure 16, follow these steps:

a. Remove the retention-clip wire and replace it with the new cable-retention clip wire.

b. Insert the plastic portion of the clip, and adjust it to the desired length.

Step 4 Secure the cable in the power supply AC port by sliding the cable-retention clip down until it fits around the connector. The cable-retention clip provides strain relief for the AC power cable.

Step 5 If you require additional AC power cable strain relief, secure the cable to the power supply handle by inserting a nylon cable tie through the hole (5) in the handle and around the cable.

Step 6 Plug the AC power supply cable into the AC power source. Repeat Step 1 through Step 6 for the second power supply (if present).


Connect DC-Input Power


Note The color coding of the DC-input power supply leads depends on the color coding of the DC power source at your site. Typically, green or green/yellow is used for ground. Make certain the lead color coding you choose for the DC-input power supply matches lead color coding used at the DC power source.



Warning When you install the unit, the ground connection must always be made first and disconnected last. Statement 42



Caution The DC return connection to this system is to remain isolated from the system frame and chassis (DC-I).

Power switch



Step 1 At the rear of the router, check that the power switch is in the off (O) position.

Step 2 Ensure that the -V and +V leads are disconnected from the power source.

Step 3 Using a wire stripper, strip approximately 0.55 inch (14 mm) from the -V, +V, and ground leads (2).

Step 4 Insert the stripped end of the ground lead (1) all the way into the ground lead receptacle on the DC-input power supply, and tighten the receptacle screw using a 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver.

Step 5 Insert the stripped end of the +V lead all the way into the +V lead receptacle and tighten the receptacle screw using the same 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver. Repeat this step for the -V lead.


Note Make sure the entire stripped end of each lead is inserted all the way into its receptacle. If any exposed wire at the stripped end of a lead is visible after inserting the lead into its receptacle, remove the lead from the receptacle, use the wire stripper to cut the stripped end of the lead, and repeat Step 3 through Step 5.


Step 6 Use a cable tie to secure the leads to the power supply.

When securing the ground, +V, and -V DC-input leads to the power supply faceplate, leave a small service loop in the ground lead to ensure that the ground lead is the last lead to disconnect from the power supply if a great deal of strain is placed on all three leads.

Step 7 Connect the ground, +V, and -V leads to the power source.


Important NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 Information

Following is some important NPE-G1 information that you need to know before you power on the router:

The NPE-G2 has its own Cisco IOS software image with the prefix "c7200p-" in the software images file names, including the boot image. The NPE-G2 does not boot up with a software image with the prefix "c7200-". Previous network processing engines, or the network services engine, do not boot up with the "c7200p-" boot image. They use the prefix "c7200-".

The RJ-45 ports and GBIC ports or SFP ports are both reported in software as GigabitEthernet 0/1, GigabitEthernet 0/2, and GigabitEthernet 0/3. Only one of the pair of interface ports can be used at a time, for example, GE 0/2 or RJ-45 0/2.

The I/O controller GE/E interface reports GE 0/0, and the I/O controller 2FE/E interface reports FE 0/0.

If the RJ-45 port is in use, the EN (enabled) LED is on. If the GBIC or SFP is in use, the EN (enabled) LED is off.

With the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 and an I/O controller both installed, the I/O controller functionality on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 is shared with that of the I/O controller.

The console and auxiliary ports on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 are disabled by Cisco IOS when an I/O controller is present; the console and auxiliary ports on the I/O controller are active.

Console port messages can be routed to the auxiliary port on either the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 or on the I/O controller.

The default media is the RJ-45 port. To change the media type, use the media-type command.

Only the port selected by the media-type command is active. A cable attached to the other of the RJ-45 and GBIC or SFP pair will be ignored. For example, if GBIC GigabitEthernet 0/2 is selected using the media-type command, RJ-45 GigabitEthernet 0/2 is ignored, even if a cable is attached to GBIC GigabitEthernet 0/2.

The NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 uses no bandwidth points. If The NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 is in the router with an I/O controller, the I/O controller also uses no bandwidth points. None of the Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 use bandwidth points.

The CompactFlash Disk on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 is available at all times, with or without an I/O controller installed.

The USB ports on the NPE-G2 are available at all times, with our without an I/O controller installed.


Note The Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 do not support the Inter-Switch Link (ISL) VLAN encapsulation protocol. We recommend that you use the IEEE 802.1Q VLAN encapsulation protocol as an alternative. Where an application requires the use of ISL, this can be provided by the Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet port adapters or I/O controllers.


Start the System and Perform a Basic Configuration


Step 1 Check that all hardware parts and cables are securely attached to the chassis.

Step 2 Check that a CompactFlash Disk, Flash Disk, or PC Card or Flash memory card is installed.

Step 3 Check that the console terminal is turned on.


Caution If you have just installed an NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 in place of an older NPE, you must save your configuration to a Flash Disk, PC Card, Flash memory card, or TFTP server before you power on the router with the new NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 installed, or you will lose your configuration. For instructions on copying and saving your configuration file, see the online Network Processing Engine and Network Services Engine Installation and Configuration document, Chapter 6, "Copying the Configuration File."

Step 4 Place the power switch in the on (|) position. Repeat this action if there is a second power supply.


Note When powering on the router, wait a minimum of 30 seconds before powering it off again.


Step 5 Listen for the fans; they should be operating as soon as power is turned on.

Step 6 During the boot process, observe the system LEDs. The power LED on the I/O controller comes on immediately. Port adapter LEDs go on and off irregularly.

Step 7 Observe the initialization process. The LEDs on each port adapter behave differently (most flash on and off). The ENABLED LED on each port adapter goes on when initialization is completed and the console screen displays a script and system banner.


Note For more information on LEDs, refer to the "LED Description" section in Chapter 1 of the Cisco 7200 VXR Installation and Configuration Guide.



Before configuring the router, determine whether or not you want to use a management tool such as Cisco Security Device Manager.

Cisco Security Device Manager (SDM), version 1.1, is an optional Java-based device-management tool that allows you to configure LAN interfaces, routing, Network Address Translation (NAT), firewalls, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), and other features without knowledge of the Cisco command-line interface (CLI). You can configure features such as Access Control Lists (ACLs), routing protocols, and other options using SDMs advanced mode.


Note You will need to use CLI commands to configure several features that SDM does not support. SDM does not support the following features: WAN configuration, Gigabit Ethernet (GE) interfaces, AA client, EZ VPN server, QoS,SSHv2, DHCP server configuration options, and usability enhancements.


SDM is preinstalled on your routers Flash Disk or CompactFlash Disk when it is ordered as part of a VPN bundle or as part of a 7xxx VPN bundle. If your router did not ship with SDM preinstalled, you can download a free copy from the Software Center at Cisco.com at http://ww.cisco.com/kobayashi/sw-center/index.shtm. Because SDM uses a GUI, it requires that you access it from a PC using a supported web browser. Go to the Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) User Guide for the Cisco 7200 VXR and Cisco 7301 Routers for more information.

Configure the Router

When you start up the router for the first time, the system automatically enters the setup facility, which determines which port adapters are installed and prompts you for configuration information for each one. On the console terminal, after the system displays the system banner and hardware configuration, you will see the following System Configuration Dialog prompt:

         --- System Configuration Dialog ---

At any point you may enter a questions mark `?' for help.
Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
Default settings are in square brackets `[]'.

continue with configuration dialog? [yes]:


Step 1 Enter yes or press Return to enter the initial configuration dialog.

You have the option of proceeding with the setup facility to configure the interfaces, or exiting from setup and using configuration commands to configure global (system-wide) and interface-specific parameters. You do not have to configure the interfaces immediately; however, you cannot enable the interfaces or connect them to any networks until you have configured them.

Many of the port adapter LEDs do not go on until you have configured the interfaces. To verify correct operation of each interface, complete the first-time startup procedures and configuration, and then refer to the configuration note for each port adapter for LED descriptions and to check the status of the interfaces.

If the system does not complete each of the steps in the startup procedure, refer to the online Cisco 7200 VXR Installation and Configuration Guide, Appendix A, "Troubleshooting the Installation," for troubleshooting recommendations and procedures.


Note You need to acquire the correct network addresses from your system administrator or consult your network plan to determine correct addresses before you can complete the router configuration.



Perform a Basic Configuration Using the Setup Facility

If you do not plan to use AutoInstall, do not connect the router's serial (WAN) cable to the channel service unit/data service unit (CSU/DSU). If the WAN cable is not connected, the router boots from Flash memory and goes automatically into the setup facility.


Note You can run the setup facility any time you are at the enable prompt (#) by entering the setup command.


If the serial (WAN) cable is connected to the CSU/DSU and the router does not have a configuration stored in NVRAM, the router attempts to run AutoInstall at startup. The router may take several minutes to determine that AutoInstall is not set up to a remote TCP/IP host. Once the router determines that AutoInstall is not configured, it defaults to the setup facility.

Configure Global Parameters

When you first start the setup program, you must configure the global parameters. These parameters are used for controlling system-wide settings. Complete the following steps to enter the global parameters:


Step 1 Connect a console terminal to the console port on the I/O controller, NPE-G1, or NPE-G2.

Step 2 Power on the router.

The system boots from Flash memory. After startup, the console screen displays a script and a system banner—after about 30 seconds—similar to the following. When you see this information, you have successfully booted your router:

Press RETURN to get started!

The first two sections of the configuration script (the banner and the installed hardware) appear only at initial system startup. On subsequent uses of the setup facility, the script begins with a System Configuration Dialog as shown in the following example:

--- System Configuration Dialog ---
 
At any point you may enter a question mark '?' for help.
Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
Default settings are in square brackets '[]'.

Step 3 When asked if you want to enter the initial configuration dialog and see the current interface summary, enter yes or press Return:

Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes]:

First, would you like to see the current interface summary? [yes]:

In the following example, the summary shows a Cisco 7200 VXR router at first-time startup; that is, nothing is configured:

Any interface listed with OK? value "NO" does not have a valid configuration
 
Interface 	       IP-Address	    OK?	    Method    	Status    Protocol
ATM1/0           	unassigned    NO     unset     	down      down
FastEthernet2/0  	unassigned    	NO     	unset     	down	      down

Step 4 Choose which protocols to support on your interfaces. For Internet Protocol (IP)-only installations, you can accept the default values for most of the questions. A typical configuration using IP, IPX, and AppleTalk follows and continues through Step 9:

Configuring global parameters: 

Enter host name [Router]:

Step 5 Enter enable secret, enable, and virtual terminal passwords:

The enable secret password is a one-way cryptographic secret password used instead of the enable password 
when it exists.

Enter enable secret: barney

The enable password is used when there is no enable secret password and when using older software and 
some boot images.

Enter enable password: betty

Enter virtual terminal password: fred

Step 6 The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is the most widely supported open standard for network management. It provides a means to access and set configuration and run-time parameters of routers and communication servers. SNMP defines a set of functions that can be used to monitor and control network elements.

Enter yes or press Return to accept SNMP management; enter no to refuse it:

  Configure SNMP Network Management? [yes]:
    Community string [public]:

Step 7 For the following queries, do not enable VINES, LAT, DECnet, CLNS, bridging, XNS, or Apollo:

Configure Vines? [no]:
Configure LAT? [no]:
Configure DECnet? [no]:
Configure CLNS? [no]:
Configure bridging? [no]:
Configure XNS? [no]:
Configure Apollo? [no]:

Step 8 For the following queries, enable routing on AppleTalk and IPX:

Configure AppleTalk? [no]: yes
    Multizone networks? [no]: yes

Configure IPX? [no]: yes

Step 9 In most cases, you use IP routing. If you are using IP routing, you must also select an interior routing protocol. You can specify only one of two interior routing protocols to operate on your system using the setup facility: Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) or Routing Information Protocol (RIP). To configure IP routing, enter yes (the default) or press Return, and then select an interior routing protocol:

Configure IP? [yes]:
Configure IGRP routing? [yes]:
Your IGRP autonomous system number [1]: 

The following sample display includes a continuous listing of all configuration parameters selected in Step 4 through Step 9. Only IP, IPX, and AppleTalk are the selected protocols for this example.

Configuring global parameters:

  Enter host name [Router]: router

The enable secret is a one-way cryptographic secret used instead of the enable password when it exists.

  Enter enable secret: barney 

The enable password is used when there is no enable secret and when using older software and some boot 
images.

  Enter enable password: betty

  Enter virtual terminal password: fred
  Configure SNMP Network Management? [yes]:
    Community string [public]:
  Configure Vines? [no]: 
  Configure LAT? [no]: 
  Configure AppleTalk? [no]: yes
    Multizone networks? [no]: yes
  Configure DECnet? [no]: 
  Configure IP? [yes]:
    Configure IGRP routing? [yes]:
      Your IGRP autonomous system number [1]: 15
    Configure RIP routing? [no]:
  Configure CLNS? [no]: n
  Configure bridging? [no]: 
  Configure IPX? [no]: yes
  Configure XNS? [no]: 
  Configure Apollo? [no]:  

Step 10 Save your settings to NVRAM. (See the "Save the Running Configuration to NVRAM" section.) Save the configuration settings that you created in the router using the configuration mode and the setup facility. If you fail to do this, your configuration will be lost the next time you reload the router.


Configuration Information for the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2

If the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 and an I/O controller are both installed in the same system, the console and auxiliary ports on the I/O controller are used and the console and auxiliary ports on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 are disabled by Cisco IOS.


Note Both the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 and the I/O controller console ports are available from the ROM monitor (ROMmon), however, the console port on the NPE-G1or NPE-G2 will be disabled once the system has completed loading the Cisco IOS image.


If the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 is used without an I/O controller, the console and auxiliary ports on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 are used.

Configure an Auxiliary Port to Receive Console Port Messages for the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2

If you choose to have console port messages routed to the auxiliary port, use the Cisco IOS command terminal monitor on the auxiliary port on which you desire to receive console messages.

Router# terminal monitor

Configure the Native Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2

The NPE-G1or NPE-G2 reports both the RJ-45 and GBIC interface ports as GigabitEthernet 0/1, GigabitEthernet 0/2, and GigabitEthernet 0/3. Before configuring either port type, you must first use the media-type interface command to select the media type, either the GBIC (gbic) for NPe-G1, SFP (sfp) for NPE-G2, or RJ-45 (rj45) port.


Note The Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 do not support the Inter-Switch Link (ISL) VLAN encapsulation protocol. We recommend that you use the IEEE 802.1Q VLAN encapsulation protocol as an alternative. Where an application requires the use of ISL, this can be provided by the Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet port adapters or I/O controllers.



Note The RJ-45 port is the default media.


Change the Media Type of the Native Gigabit Ethernet SFP, GBIC, or RJ-45 Ports

To be able to use a particular media port for the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 or I/O Controller GE/E, use Cisco IOS to select the media type. This is done by using the media-type interface command:

media-type { sfp | gbic | rj45 }

Example:

interface GigabitEthernet 0/1
	media-type rj45
end

Configure the Interface Transmission and Speed Modes for the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2


Step 1 After changing the media type, configure the speed and transmission modes to appropriately match the new interface characteristics. Changing the speed and duplex of an NPE-G1 Gigabit Ethernet interface is done using the speed and duplex interface commands.


Note These commands are only applicable when using the RJ-45 media.


speed { 10 | 100 | 1000 | auto }

duplex { full | half | auto }


The following speed/duplex settings are supported:

Media Type          Speed                    Duplex 
------------------------------------------------------- 
RJ45            10, 100, 1000, auto      full, half, auto
GBIC(1)         1000, auto(2)            full, half, auto
-------------------------------------------------------

a. If you are using the no negotiation auto command, the speed and duplex should be set to a value other than auto for correct operation.

b. The only available speed in this mode is 1000 Mbps; there is no difference whether 1000 or auto is selected.

When using the GBIC or SFP media, there is also the additional negotiation auto command that is used to enable the IEEE 802.1z Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps) autonegotiation protocol.

Step 2 To turn the autonegotiation feature off (it is on by default), issue the interface command no negotiation auto. This is useful for connecting to other Gigabit Ethernet equipment that does not support 802.1z autonegotiation.


Note The autonegotiation feature is not supported when using the media type rj-45 and will be ignored if implementation is attempted.


If you change from the GBIC or SFP to the RJ-45 media type, you must set speed and duplex after you have executed the media-type command to ensure the interface will operate in the correct mode.

The media-type GBIC or media-type SFP mode will always default to 1000 Mbps. Both full-duplex and half-duplex operation are supported in this mode.


Debug the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2

Cisco IOS provides two commands to provide information on your interfaces: show interface GigabitEthernet 0/X (where X is 1, 2, or 3) and show controllers GigabitEthernet 0/1.

The output of the show interface command is useful for determining the current operating mode of the interface (speed/duplex/media-type) and the current interface statistics.

The output of the show controllers command displays more information specific to the I/O controller interface. For example, it shows the detected link status, speed, and duplex, and also determines the current status of autonegotiation and the link partners' abilities (if it is an autonegotiation-capable interface).

The show controllers command also displays the current operating state of the driver and the Ethernet controller hardware. The show controllers command is a very powerful debugging aid, especially for Cisco engineers should you need help in debugging a problem. If you have any problems with your Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, you will need to provide this information to Cisco for analysis.

Reset the Interface on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2

Should you have a problem with your NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 interface and wish to try and reset it, use the command:

clear interface GigabitEthernet 0/X    (where X is 1, 2, or 3)

Clear Counters on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2

NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 interface counters may be cleared (reset) by using the command:

clear counters GigabitEthernet 0/X    (where X is 1, 2, or 3)

This will not reset the interface.

Configure Interfaces

Following are the steps for configuring interfaces to allow communication over a LAN or WAN. To configure the interface parameters, you need your interface network addresses and subnet mask information.

Configure ATM Interfaces

In the following example, an ATM interface in slot 1 is configured for an ATM LAN using IP. Follow these steps to configure an ATM interface:


Step 1 Using your own addresses and mask at the setup prompts, respond to the prompts as follows:

Configuring interface parameters:

Configuring interface ATM1/0:
Is this interface in use? [yes]: 
Configure IP on this interface? [yes]:
IP address for this interface: 1.1.1.10
Number of bits in subnet field [0]: 
Class C network is 1.1.1.0, 0 subnet bits; mask is /24

Step 2 Determine if you are going to enable IPX on this interface; if you are, enter the unique IPX network number:

Configure IPX on this interface? [no]: yes
IPX network number [2]:

Step 3 If you are using AppleTalk on the interface, enter yes. Enter yes to configure for extended AppleTalk networks, and then enter the cable range number. Enter the zone name and any other additional zones that are associated with your local zone:

Configure AppleTalk on this interface? [no]: yes

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—An existing network is down, or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operations are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of the network is impaired, while most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
